During the first eighty-eight years of [the 20th Century], almost 170 million men, women, and children have been shot, beaten, tortured, knifed, burned, starved, frozen, crushed, or worked to death; buried alive, drowned, hung, bombed, or killed in any other of the myriad ways governments have inflicted death on unarmed, helpless citizens or foreigners. The dead could conceivably be nearly 360 million people. It is as though our species has been devastated by a modern Black Plague. And indeed it has, but a plague of Power, not germs.
—  R.J. Rummel, quoted in The Triumph of Liberty by Jim Powell
No president has ever really done much for the American Negro, though the past two presidents have received much undeserved credit for helping us. This credit has accrued to Lyndon Johnson and John Kennedy only because it was during their administration that Negroes began doing more for themselves.

The evening after Miyusawa dropped the bombshell and came out to the public

Eijun reading through the warzone that is the comment sections of a bunch of articles on them

Eijun: “Wow, you sure are popular.”

Miyuki: “You just realized?”

Eijun: “Shut up, you!!”

And then Miyuki joining in because what the hell is this boy doing lol

Miyuki: “What are you even reading?”

Eijun: “People saying nice things about..you know.”

Miyuki: “Hmm..things like ‘miyuki s fcken faggot y do girls like that guy?’”

Eijun: “Wha- no! Not that you idiot! Look at the replies.”

and then there’s hundreds of replies and comments protecting them saying: 

“Just because they’re gay doesn’t make them any less great at baseball you dumbass!”“Because he’s a fucking beautiful guy unlike you!”“So what if they’re gay? They’re both pretty darn hot!”“They look cute together too…”


“miyu..sawa…”

20 days of P!nk: Music Challenge [x]
Day 20 - A song that sounds better in acoustic version ⟶ Perfect

What an amazing song to end this challenge with. Definitely one of my favorite P!nk songs of all time. ‘Perfect’ was the first song I heard “live” (aka though youtube) when she went on the promotour for 'TTOL’. I had been waiting for a live version since 'Greatest Hits’ and when I finally heard it, I broke. It has made me tear up more than any other P!nk song ever. Hearing the song for the first time, seeing the video, hearing the live version; it was like a roller coaster of emotions. I wonder what will happen to me when I finally go see her in concert again and she sings this..
